By the book here

Terry Spamer reveals eye opening and shocking experiences through his work fighting animal crulety travelling the globe from Ghana, the UK over to Scandinavia throughout this book which leaves the reader in shock at the actions of the people exposed within his stories.

As I picked up this book I was captivated from start to finish hanging on Terry's every word.

He looks at Monkey smugglers, the illegal ivory trade, reindeer abuse, dog fighting rings and so much more keeping his writing interesting and educational along side pushing his message of fighting animal cruelty.
One note I would advise on is that within the book Terry gives a warning at the start of a chapter saying "if you are squeamish just skip this chapter", I then went forward thinking there will be nothing that bad but I was wrong. Now if you are squeamish then take his warning and skip that chapter but overall I think his inclusion of a very hard to read chapter did push his message of animal welfare within the book.

After finishing this book I would highly recommend it and may have to read it again.
Terry gave many eye opening experiences which were very interesting and captivating all at the same time of learning about animal welfare.

Sal has a troubled life, her mother is an alcoholic who doesn't fill the role of mother, Robert her mothers boyfriend beats both her and her mother and in the night comes into her room for some horrible acts towards Sal.

Sal knows what will happen to her sister if she does not act soon, and unfortunately for Robert she has had time to prepare. 
Sal is a wonderful story between the bond of two sisters as Sal and Peppa strive to survive in the woods of Scotland living off the land with help from information Sal saw online and on YouTube. 
I loved this story and was always excited to read what would happen next to the sisters and how they would survive. There are turns in the story which I did not expect that worked brilliantly in expanding…

Everyone's favourite monster family is back with a new graphic novel featuring all the great characters from the movies. 
Theme park boss Stephen Cling is out to undo all the good work Dracs has done and make the public think monsters are scary again by putting some misleading pictures on the internet. Unfortunately Dracs just isn't so good at showing that not everything you read online is true.
This first volume of the Hotel Transylvania graphic novels is a great start to a new story line which looks like it may be aimed more at the kids but the adults will love it too.
Stefan Petrucha has done a great job of bringing modern day problems such as not believing everything you see on the internet as truth into this story and manages to have it read as if it was right out of the movie. 
It is a little on the short s…
